Looking Forward, a Little Back
I do have a few observationss about 2013, but I am much more focused, at this point, on 2014.
Looking ahead, first up I have five pieces in this show fast approaching in Portland. Oregon at Butters Gallery. I’ll send the invite along as we get closer so that you can forward to any Portland friends. Curated by gallery artist Melinda Stickney Gibson.
Below are two of the pieces that will be included, already boxed up and ready to send.
Two Affinities that I started in 2013 were finished this past week, so here are the first pieces of the new year. I have two larger works on the easel, vastly different from each other, coming up next.
Also coming up in 2014 is my solo show at Chace-Randall Gallery, May 23-July 7. I hope to see you at the opening reception on Saturday, May 24, 5-7pm. Zoe has just begun to make a few picks, and I am not nearly finished painting for the show, but these are two of her early choices (of about 12-14).
Looking back, the last piece sold in December, 2013.
And several of the last finished pieces of last year.
A few other favorites from 2013:
I will have a duo show at Julie Heller East in Provincetown, mid-late summer or early fall, dates coming soon. This work, all of Provincetown and environs, mostly remains to be done, but a few possibilities are below.
Also on the schedule opening July 4th, a show in Oneonta, NY at CANO, the local arts organization housed in historic Wilber Mansion (where I took art lessons as a child!) called “Three Generations”. More on this later, but included will be my mother, Gerri Scheele, myself, and my twins, Tony and Tessa Scheele Morelli, with paintings, ceramics, sculpture, drawings, and linocut prints.
Since my last newsletter, I have completed two blog posts, just recently one called “Narrative and Abstraction in Representational Painting” that discusses the topic using the work of Andrew Wyeth and my own.
And “Repainting a Finished Piece”.
